The sweet sequins party outfit, the sparkly plum outfit(Weird name, what is with the plum part?), The frosted violet gown are also favorites of KittyFan. For me, I like all of the ballgowns from 2017, 2016,2013,2010, and 2005. 😍👗



My little sis (codename KittyFan) loves the 2012 Purple Party Outfit.

2020, the year the world shut down, at least we had a decant dress that was not too fancy



You are missing the Winter Magic Outfit from 2004


I only have the Merry Magenta Dress and got it through the annual clearance sale AG does with their holiday stuff after the season is over. I also really like the sparkly plum dress, the midnight holly dress, and the chocolate cherry dress. I hope I can find any or all of them on eBay or somewhere else someday.

Also, why can't I remember the 2019 or 2020 dresses?
